Lyrics[]

[Intro]
I'm testing the microphone, oh-oh
'Cause them regular folk went home, yeah-yeah
(Home, home, home)
I need you, come on
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)

[Verse]
Touching you in dreams of blue
In a mesmerizing interlude
Half asleep, semi conscious
But I know this feeling ain't gon' pass

[Pre-Chorus]
The moments that we shared seem so very real
Undeniably so
Tough guy exterior but, ooh, I got a glimpse
You're falling in love
And you'll never be the same again, mesmerized
(You're mesmerized)

[Chorus]
Just say, just say, yeah-yeah
Tell me that you want it, you want it, you want it
Tell me that you want it, you want it, you want it
Just say, just say, yeah-yeah
Tell me that you want it, you want it, you want it
Tell me that you want it, you want it, you want it

[Verse]
Touching you in dreams of blue
In a mesmerizing interlude
Half asleep, semi conscious
But I know this feeling ain't gon' pass

[Pre-Chorus]
The moments that we shared seem so very real
Undeniably so
Tough guy exterior but, ooh, I got a glimpse
You're falling in love
And you'll never be the same again, mesmerized
(You're mesmerized)

[Chorus]
Just say, just say, yeah-yeah
Tell me that you want it, you want it, you want it
Tell me that you want it, you want it, you want it
Just say, just say, yeah-yeah
Tell me that you want it, you want it, you want it
Tell me that you want it, you want it, you want it

[Bridge]
Baby, baby, baby (Babe)
I'm here waiting for your call (For your call)
Just thinking of you
I keep holding on
Baby, I'm mesmerized

[Chorus]
Just say, just say, yeah-yeah
Tell me that you want it, you want it, you want it
Tell me that you want it, you want it, you want it
Just say, just say, yeah-yeah
Tell me that you want it, you want it, you want it
Tell me that you want it, you want it, you want it

[Outro]
Just say, just say, yeah-yeah (I need to know)
Tell me that you want it, you want it, you want it
Tell me that you want it, you want it, you want it
Just say, just say, yeah-yeah (I need to know, what to say)
Tell me that you want it, you want it, you want it
Tell me that you want it, you want it, you want it
